You know those cute little smilies in people's posts. Do you want to know how to get those, change them out, or set up your favorites to appear in the window while you are posting?

This is the place to be! I will give you some walk through instructions to help you set it up.

First, make sure you are logged in. Look up in top right hand corner and you will see "Welcome, Your Name" That means you are logged in.

Next, in the navigation bar at the top of each page you see links to different things around the forums. Click on the one on the far left "User CP"

You are now in your User Control Panel.

Look at your Control Panel on the left hand side of the page and click on the link "Edit Favorite Smilies"

Here you will see all of the smilies that are available to use. You can select select up to 15 smilies to be set as your favorites. These will be the smilies that appear in your posting window to the left. You can easily select them to be used in your posts.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a set of buttons:

These buttons do as follows:

- This saves the smilies you have selected

- This will reset the ones you have used since arriving and changing them up during this visit only

- This deselects any and all smilies that you have saved previously

To select the smilies you want, just click on the box to the left of the smilie you would like to save as a favorite like this:

The smilie will not be saved as a favorite if you do not have a check mark in the box like this:

When you have completed or choosen all of the smilies you would like, make sure you click on the save button at the bottom.
